ORANGE COOKIE TEA
Okay, we’re not really dunking cookies in a brew here. That would just be silly.
But what you do have here is a black tea with a zingy, festive flavour and a warming feel to it.
First you have the spiciness of the sweet cinnamon bits, punchy coriander, cardamom, cloves and hot fruity pepper. Second you have the generous portions of sweet apple pieces, which give it that ‘cookie’ sensation in the mouth.
Origin: India and Europe.
Flavour: sweet cinnamon bits, spicy coriander, cardamom, cloves and hot fruity pepper are masterfully rounded off by generous portion of sweet apple pieces. The scent of juicy oranges and delicate cream complete this unique taste experience.

“I was inspired by these wonderful puffy orange creme cookies that my mum used to make. They were extraordinarily light weight, and airy, but the orange, chocolate and vanilla melted in my mouth amazing flavours. Hard to believe, but no one got the recipe! So I tried a bunch of ways to replicate them, and then started fiddling with tea flavours to make it come out right–and Voila! The Aristocrats Orange Cookie Tea!”
TEA LOVERS FACTS
Permato Gayo manages all aspects of production, for consistency and quality. The focus is on guaranteeing traceability through the whole supply chain. The Galling-Basah process is unique to Sumatra and results in a deep blue or green hue to the raw coffee. This creates a special cupping profile. The process involves three steps, depending on moisture content. ‘Gabah’ is when wet parchment coffee is dried immediately and hulled. ‘Labu’ is for wet green beans at about 30-40 per cent humidity. The third step is ‘Assalan’, exported at 12-13 per cent humidity. The coffee is grown at altitudes between 1,200m and 1,600m high in the north west of Sumatra. It’s one any enthusiast would want to get their hands on. Simply choose your grind type, add to basket for a superb freshly roasted coffee…
